Internship Program at the Julian Center

The Julian Center relies on our partnerships with academic institutions to provide support for many of our service programs. Through internships, students can gain important experience and knowledge and the Julian Center can provide services to more survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Our goal is to support those interested in a career in non-profit service. In order to provide that support and to provide the necessary level of quality assistance and service to our clients, the Julian Center has established the following guidelines for our internship opportunities: Please note: our internship review process may take up to 30 business days from application date to issue an acceptance decision.
